You will learn the different components of Hacking: Reconnaissance, Scanning, Gaining access, Maintaining access & Clearing tracks. You will have a firm understanding of places of hacking and mind map apart from gaining insights of denial of service, distributed denial of service, syn flooding attach using hping3, counter measures and Metasploit test.

Section 5: Counter Measures
DoS/DDoS countermeasure strategies
Detech and neutralize handlers
Monitoring the activities running on a system of network
Deflect attacks by load balancing
Mitigate attacks disabling unnecessary services
Intrusion detection systems
Section 6: Metasploit test
Metasploit is so popular is the wide range of tasks that it can perform to ease the work of penetration testing to make
systems more secure. Metasploit is available for all popular operating systems.
